Steps Tournaments Continue
SunPoker’s Steps Tournaments continue to build up as players are challenging each other internally as to who can climb to the top the fastest and who will cash in the $200,000 Guaranteed first!
What step will you start at? Take the first step for only $0.16 and work your way to the top of the mountain for a $215 token to the $200,000 Guaranteed Tournament or would it be at a higher step getting you that much closer to top!
Either way, reaching for $200,000 has never been cheaper or this much fun with SunPoker’s Step Tournaments!
These tournaments are 10 player Sit 'N' Go’s every time you win a tournament you will receive a token to the next step, now of course players can buy in directly to any Steps Tournament at any level, which means you don’t need to start at the bottom!
The tiered structure of Steps Tournaments gives you the opportunity to work your way up from Step 1 to 7; the tournaments are designed to keep you in the game!
If you don’t proceed to the next Step, don’t panic, you can win a token either to repeat the same step or at a lower step. Alternatively you can use any winning tokens, from Step 2 on, to buy in to any of the tournaments listed in the table below with an equivalent buy-in amount.
Your Goal Conquer the 7th Step to win the top prize and play your way to cash in the $200,000 Guaranteed! So get your step on!
These tournaments can be found under the Sit 'N' Go code on your SunPoker software.

World Poker Tour Legends of Poker Main Event Starts Thursday
On Thursday, the Bicycle Casino kicked off their annual World Poker Tour Legends of Poker main event. The 20-event series has been running since late July and has awarded millions in prize money.
The $3,500 main event is the first televised stop on season 10 of the WPT, and tournament officials are expecting an estimated prize pool of $3 million, thanks to the lowered buy in and two re-entry days. Players who are eliminated on day 1A may buy-in to day 1B.
In addition to it’s televised coverage on Fox Sports Net, the Bike will be webcasting the main event on LiveattheBike.com.
Last year’s champion Andy Frankenberger defeated Kyle Wilson and a field of 462 to earn a $750,000 payday. The win sparked a nice run for Frankenberger, who went on to become the season 9 WPT Player of the Year.
Last November, the Bike signed a five-year extension with the WPT that will see the series remain a tour stop through 2015.
The $3,500 Main Event Will Allow Re-Entry For Those Eliminated On Day 1A
